#MealPrepSunday 4/10/2016

Every Sunday, I spend a couple of hours in the kitchen prepping my meals for the week. #MealPrepMonday definitely sounds sooooo much catchier, but alas I only have time on Sundays! 

As I mentioned, I work two jobs, so on most days I am out of the apartment by 8:30a.m. and I don't get back until 9:00 p.m. (even later if I go to the gym)! I also go straight from one job to the other without stopping at home on most days. Prepping my meals allows me to eat on the go without spending a ton of money or indulging in less-than-good-for-you options.

It is such a habit at this point, but it's one that's worth keeping! While I do enjoy the time in the kitchen, it's a necessity because my entire week is rendered a disorganized mess if I don't do take the time out to do it. Trust me, I'm speaking from experience here 0__o *sighs* The ONE TIME I was too lazy to meal prep a few months ago, I paid for it the whole time and it was miserable. I was either buying food or scrambling to have dinner late at night. Needless to say, I haven't skipped a Sunday since then! 

This #MealPrepSunday post will be the first of a series where I share what I've made for the week. I don't anticipate posting every single Sunday, but you can expect to see a post every few weeks!


Breakfast: Green smoothie made with spinach, frozen raspberries, banana, almond milk, greek yogurt, chia seeds, milled flax seeds, and matcha green tea powder! 

Lunch: Spinach and baby lettuce salad with blackened chicken, goat cheese, thinly sliced pear, pecans, and craisins! I'll have it with a little balsalmic vinaigrette. 

Dinner: Greek Chicken Lettuce Wrap "Gyros" with veggie toppings and Trader Joe's tzatziki. This little plate is enough for 3 wraps! 

You should know that my meal prep photos aren't your typical pretty pictures of rows of tupperware because I have a roommate and there is NO WAY I'd be able to fit it all in our fridge. I make big batches of everything, then package them out for each day the night before. I also pack snacks and make a huge pitcher of unsweetened green tea so I stay away from juice.

Anyway, that's all for now! Do you meal prep? What are some of your go-to meals!? I would love to know!
